Bridge International Academies


To provide every child with the chance to have a high-quality primary education regardless of their family’s income – in a nutshell, “Knowledge for all.”


Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria and Liberia









Bridge International Academies is an education innovation company which runs over 400 nursery and primary schools across emerging markets in Africa. Using a data-driven technology platform, Bridge is able to monitor teacher and student performance in real-time to ensure that students are receiving the highest quality education at a cost that is affordable for low-income families.

Bridge is currently participating in a pilot with the Ministry of Education of Liberia, in a country where 42% of children are estimated to be out of school.   Under this public-private partnership, Bridge and other implementing partners are taking over the management of a selection of state schools, to improve the quality of the education whilst maintaining free tuition for the pupils.


We are managing a grant made by our sister non-profit Hampshire Foundation, to support the Partnership Schools for Liberia pilot.
